Peeples....First, let me say that I LOVE the comment from Justilvie!! Her attitude is much the same as my own ......and believe me, it is all about attitude. Freaking out over the inevitable, something we have little, if any control over, is senseless, to say the least.
Why some individuals seem to be unable to "handle" aging in a beneficial, relaxed manner, might just be related to their basic personality. By that, I mean, some people simply tend to "worry" needlessly, or in advance of an expected occurrence, whatever it may be. Men & women who are accustomed to being IN CONTROL, or maintaining a firm grip on the happenings in their life.....are not comfortable when confronted with an issue that requires they "relax" and take one day at a time.
In any case, I can attest with confidence ....aging is not to be feared, but welcomed and enjoyed. Honestly...it's not JUST being "older." It's also being wiser, calmer, more patient, more grateful and happier, in general! Relax, young Mom, you have a ways to go!! Enjoy TODAY!
